Jury deadlocked on Kayla Fanaei murder

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - After deliberating for nearly two full days, a Jefferson County jury was deadlocked Monday afternoon in Maurice McCarty's capital murder case.

Mccarty is accused of killing UAB student Kayla Fanaei in October 2007.  Fanaei was shot in the back of the head while sitting in her car in the parking lot of Glen Iris Elementary School, just off UAB's campus.

Judge Teresa Pulliam was expected Monday afternoon to issue an Allen charge, encouraging jurors to continue deliberating until a verdict was reached.
